Walking Dead Season 2 Case Break

Box #2 of 12 Results
Wardrobe Cards: Rick Grimes [Dark Green Shirt - Non-Variant] and Walker Horde [Light Blue Shirt Fabric - Slight-Variant (White/Dark Blue Stitch Lines on either side]
Autograph Card: Scott Wilson as Hershel Green

On a side note, the Walker Shadow Box cards look awesome in person.

Argh... I'd really like to get my boxes! I have no idea when I'll be getting them from Solarfly Cards though.

Yes, I agree. Unless they hit 2k, is it really worth selling?

As a collector I could never sell unopened product. You just never know which box could have that pull of a lifetime. I'd be smacking my head against a wall if I found out a box that I sold had a redemption or a sketch in it.

I bet by Monday when people start getting their cases and the good pulls start coming out, the case prices will go UP! $1500 might be a good deal in a week or so.

I would much rather hit the Shane redemption than the dual auto.

I have no desire for the dual-auto. It's just not that special to me... I mean we're already getting autos for those characters (plus we've already got 2 yeun's from last year) and people already have that to start with.

The Shane redemption is the golden ticket here... I'd love to get one.

Even at 2k its tough, I didn't case my case early enough so I paid pretty good money for it, at $2000, after shipping and ebay/paypal fees (which is the way I would have to sell the case most likely on ebay) I probably would end up with a $400 to $500 profit, which by no means is bad, I do want a autograph set though and if a 12 box case is yeilding 11-12 autographs of the set then it might be worth it depending on what a autograph set sells for.

agreed Serial, they also should have got Jon to sign the 25 cards as well, that would have taken it to a whole new level.

Patience isn't the problem lol, its all about where you bought the case at if you got in at $800 when it first came out then 2k you are doubling money easy, if you got in later once it hit $1100 plus then you might want to take a chance on opening the case. My thoughts are depending on what base sets, insert sets, wardrobe cards, and sketch cards sell for that may determine if I open or sell sealed.

i think its just luck of the draw to be honest. Same with sports cards its nice to have a lucky number or place to buy but when it comes down to it its really just luck.

but if some dealers open up a few boxes from their case and get an Andy or Norman auto right from the hop and sell some of their other boxes your odds just went for a major dump and more than likely you would lose $ on buying a box

i kinda believe that LCS have better pulls for some reason versus online. but then again it could be the "front loading" part of the game that they play

Its hard to trust anyone that sells loose boxes to be honest. I have been thinking about opening up some of my case and see what I get, but if I list the boxes I am going to state in my auction that I already pulled the sketch card and what autos I already pulled but thats just me trying to be fair to the next person. I will take the time and list everything I have pulled so far.

Well my view of it is, I am still making my money, but I have a clear mind that someone buying my sealed boxes from me knows whats gone already and probably shouldn't expect to see those cards. I have almost 4000 positive feedbacks on ebay and 80 plus on here, I try to be as fair and easy to work with as I can. I treat others like I want to be treated and I would want to know what boxes I am getting in return also.

Miranda stated that non-walker character wardrobes would fall 1:21 packs so a couple of your boxes like Bryan's will have 3 wardrobe hits.

All of the autos are pretty even, although Sophia's two versions could get a little off from getting both out of 2 cases. Everything I looked at in NC looked really good, without duplicates of Auto or Wardrobe out of a case.
Yes, you do get a Walker Wardrobe out of every box, but that never took the place of a Non-Walker Wardrobe--it was always designed to be in addition to the one Character Wardrobe per box. We did have a bit extra Wardrobe swatches, so we increased the ration from 1:24 to about 1:21, so you should get about 13 Character Wardrobe per case.

when my six boxes come in next week, the only auto's i dont want to see would be IronE and Chandler's, although I'll pick them up eventually I think those two will sell for the least. I would love a Nicotero, he's done so much for the industry and is the best at his craft.
